Do you want to hang out with friends from all over the world and experience local culture as well? Then Hamayu is the perfect place for you Obviously, Beppu is the famous area for the hostel. I explored lots of great onsens here, including a secret the hostel located outside in nature. Also I met nice friends and we often went out together to do something fun here And both managers, Masa and Got, are super helpful and kind. The workload is not hard, which means you can have lots of time to do whatever you want. Having private room also great too. I appreciate all the experiences while I'm here

I had a good experience with Got and Masa-san at Hamayu the hostel. Weekly hours are respected and you have a lot of free time to do what you want, although the city does not offer many options. I had a single, comfortable room, so I could enjoy my time there. I thank the other volunteers who helped make that time really enjoyable 😄

My experience at the hostel was great, the job was really easy and you have a lot of free time. It's easy to meet other travellers and/or volunteers at the hostel.Beppu is not the most beautiful city you'll ever see, but the hostel culture is great, and if you take daytrips from there you can see charming little Japanese villages around. There is free the hostel at the hostel, so I mostly used that, it was great!The room that I got was small and basic, but it was private which is usually not the case when you volunteer in Japan. Overall I had a great experience and I can truly recommend this place!

My time in the hostel was lovely. I had a fantastic experience during my stay. Both managers were helpful and kind. I really appreciate that I had a private room because most of the hosts in japan offer only shared rooms. Also the hostel was cool Because the work is just 9h/week you have a lot of time to visit everything beppu has to offer. And it was really worth it exploring this city and neighbour areas. Beautiful place, not overcrowded by tourists. I recommend visiting on your own

Beppu is a nice town at the ocean surrounded by mountains. With a lot hot the hostel in that area. You just work 9 hours a week which is really not much. So a lot of free time to look around. It's just cleaning, it's well explained and easy to follow. I think everybody can do it. The Hostel is a little bit older but the single room is nice. It's great to have a single room in Japan. The Host and my coworker were really friendly and I made good friends. I am happy that I could stay at beppu.
